Gaskets for Industrial Applications
Industry Articles, 3.36 MB
The European Standard EN 13555, updated in the summer of 2014, defines the sealing gasket design factors and test methods for round flange connections. This allows the comparison of the properties of gaskets. Among other things, the standard establishes a new definition of the maximum surface pressure. What changes does this bring for the operators of plants and what criteria should be considered in the selection of gaskets using the characteristic as per EN 13555?

ePTFE gasket tapes for high chemical resistance - The connections to shell and tube heat exchangers pose immense challenges for the seals that are used because of both the chemically aggressive media and the frequent temperature load changes. Despite its excellent chemical resistance, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is not typically suitable as a sealing material in this case because the creep tendency of this material jeopardizes a reliable seal.

Sometimes you'd rather not be outside. But the flanges are. Gore's form-in-place gasket products, with their convenient customization, provide an excellent solution for large flanges. But often those flanges are located outside and are exposed to cold weather. Low temperatures may significantly decrease the effectiveness of standard adhesives. Gore's cold temperature adhesive (CTA) is specially formulated to stick to flanges in extreme cold temperatures—down to 0°F (-18°C). The cold temperature adhesive option is available on a seasonal basis in North America.

The Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) tests the sealing material compatibility for use in flanged connections with liquid and gaseous oxygen. Further information on the test procedure and the result can be found in the following test report. Please note that the test was conducted without adhesive backing. Please note that the test was conducted on the version of this product with no adhesive backing.
CAUTION: Extra care is advised to ensure that the gasket surface is free from particulate contamination that accumulates due to static charge.
